Introduction: Xanax and Anxiety
Xanax, also known as Alprazolam, is a medication prescribed to individuals with anxiety and panic disorders. It belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, which work on the brain to produce a calming effect. However, Xanax is also commonly misused and abused, leading to addiction and even death.
What is a Blue Xanax Bar?
A blue Xanax bar is a 2mg strength pill with active Alprazolam. It is prescribed for anxiety and panic attacks and has the inscription “B707” on one side to distinguish it from counterfeit pills. The dosage may be adjusted over time to find the most effective amount for the patient.
How Does Blue Xanax Bar Work?
Xanax enhances the effects of a neurotransmitter called GABA, which reduces nerve cell communication and produces a calming effect. Blue Xanax bars have an increased onset of effects compared to lower doses.
Precautions and Side Effects
Xanax is a controlled substance and can be addictive and habit-forming. It is important to use the medication in moderation and not increase the dosage without consulting a doctor. Common side effects include fatigue, dizziness, irritability, poor coordination, loss of appetite, and nausea.
How to Use Blue Xanax Bars
Blue Xanax bars are orally administered and can be taken with or without food as directed by a physician. If prescribed a lower dosage, the pill can be broken into portions. The high dosage strength means it may stay in the system for an extended period, depending on various factors.
